1. What’s the best type of battery for my hearing aid?
Zinc air batteries are ideal for hearing aids. With a unique construction that utilizes air from outside the battery.
2. Why is there a tab on my battery?
Zinc air batteries uses air as a source of power, and the tab provides a seal that ensures freshness until the battery is ready for use. To activate the battery, simply remove the tab, wait at least one minute to allow air to activate the ingredients, and insert the battery into your hearing aid. (Note that replacing the tab when the battery is not in use will not extend the battery life.)
3. How long will my batteries last?
Battery life is determined by the type and amplification of your hearing aid, as well as the hours you wear it. Your hearing care professional can tell you the battery life to expect. Once the tab has been removed the chemical reaction with the air starts and the batteries will be dead/flat in around a month even if not used or the tab is replaced.
4. What’s the best way to store and care for my hearing aid batteries?
Store your hearing aid batteries at room temperature. Avoid temperature extremes, as heat will shorten the life of the batteries, and refrigeration is not recommended.
Metal objects such as coins and keys can short out batteries, so don’t carry batteries in your pocket or purse. Always be sure to store and discard batteries in places that cannot be reached by infants or children.
If a battery is swallowed, see a doctor immediately. For recommended treatment you can call the USA National Button Battery Hotline at 001-202-625-3333.
5. What are the different hearing aid battery sizes?
Hearing aid battery sizes are 10 (yellow), 13 (orange), 312 (brown), and 675 (blue). Manufacturers use the industry standard color code on the packet to help identify the battery size.
You may notice that different manufacturers often place different letters before or after the battery size. For instance, 13A or R13ZA may look different, but both codes represent size 13 batteries.
6. Do hearing aid batteries contain mercury?
As per EU directive 2006/66/EC and amendment 2013/56/EU effective October 1st 2015, mercury (Hg) will no longer be used in the manufacture of button cells after October this year.
As part of our environmental policy Connevans have offered a range of mercury free batteries for several years.
